Race report: MinuteClinic Fun Run #MCFunRun

Good morning, Laguna Niguel! What a way to start the day.

Eat Blog Run Heather

Christine, Marie, and I were lucky enough to run along the oceanfront this month at the Minute Clinic Fun Run. We donned our sparkle skirts and set out with dozens of other lady bloggers for either a one-mile or three-mile course. Both routes were along the water and featured stellar views and opportunities for chatting with the nurses on-hand.

There were two big difference between the two courses. One milers were encouraged to stop, do exercises, and ask and answer health-related questions. And three-milers had a hill to climb (and an expectation of being competitive).

Marie ran and walked (and giggled and photographed!) with my blogging buddy, Whitney.

Christine and I ran for the three but sneakily turned around early for more of a two-miler. The net result of turning around early was that the finish line monitors thought we might be the big winners of the “competitive race” — ha! The only way that Christine or I would win a race is… well… never.

Everyone had a wonderful time with the scenery and camaraderie. We were all treated by CVS to a goody bag shipped to our homes and a technical running shirt (pictured above). Thanks so much for sponsoring such a terrific morning run, MinuteClinic!

 

Marie really captured the spirit of the run with her sweet little video:

It makes me want to get out there and run it all over again!
